It was a slow weekend. Rain and the threat of severe weather kept me in on Saturday morning, even though there apparently were a couple of yard sales that said “rain or shine.” I always regret not going to sales because of potential lost opportunities, but I must admit that I did enjoy sleeping later than usual.
When I finally dragged myself out of bed, I decided to put the time to good use by spending the day listing some of my backlog. I made some good headway, including listing two Dungeons & Dragons sets,. This one sold almost immediately, which made me wonder if I should have set my price higher.
I also fielded a couple of "best offers" for a lot of Nintendo games. There are 29 games, some worth at least $15, and I have it priced at $139 or "Best Offer." Unfortunately, the "best offers" were in the $40 range. I don't think so.
In addition, I listed several Care Bears that had been just sitting around. My favorite listing, though, is my first edition Harry Potter book that was published in England. It's not worth a whole lot, but it's cool.
On Sunday, I decided to spend a little time on Amazon listings. Amazon has been my bread and butter for a while, but I had been neglecting it in favor of getting my eBay store up and running properly. So, I listed and listed, and got two boxes (one of books, the other of toys) ready to send to Amazon's FBA program.
I also managed to sneak to Wal-Mart to scout their toy clearance. Not much there for resellers, unfortunately. Margins were still too slim to make any money.
I finished my weekend on Sunday night by watching the ballgame, and packing everything that had sold.
All in all, it was a decent two days. I hope the weather is better, and the sales more plentiful next weekend, though.
